Home of the Week: Prestigious Laguna Beach Estate

The five-star, award-winning Montage Resort in Laguna Beach enjoys a reputation as one of the finest getaway spots in the world. And for those who covet the lavish Southern California lifestyle for more than a few weeks per year, 13 homesites provide an incomparable opportunity for everyday living. 25 Montage Way offers a truly rare opportunity to own a piece of the pristine Montage lifestyle in what is widely considered to be Orange County’s most prestigious and coveted luxury enclave.

This newly constructed custom estate offers ocean-view living at a new standard of luxury, along with all the best of Montage, with access to all resort amenities including Spa Montage and private dining, as well as complimentary personal concierge services.



More than 8,300 square feet of innovative architecture by architect Chris Light, who, true to his name, has created a luminous estate home that showcases magnificent state-of-the-art features as a complement to the incomparable ocean vistas. Designed to exude both the prestige of Montage living and the allure of the Southern California coast, the home’s magnificent open floorplan is defined by its location—situated so as to maximize the views and designed with seamless indoor-outdoor living.


Enter the home via a spectacular glass bridge into the great room, where glass walls disappear, bringing the resort grounds and panoramic views right into the living space. Enjoy a delicious meal in the luxurious formal dining room, or step outside to dine on the covered loggia, where the sparkling pool provides a beautiful counterpoint to the blue of the ocean and majesty of the fringe of palm trees.


In the grand master suite, access to the outside is offered from two sides, with Pacific sightlines, manicured lawns, tropical landscaping and tranquil fountains joining with cooling ocean breezes. Here, luxe materials, a spa bath, and an enormous custom closet to create space like no other.

On the lower level, grand entertainment potential reaches new highs, with a state-of-the-art game room, a theater room, a wine cellar and tasting room, as well as a handsome library and an exercise room. The home also offers an elevator.



In the immense kitchen, custom cabinetry and high-end appliances create a haven for the gourmet chef. Just adjacent, a breakfast nook nestled under a rounded drop ceiling offers a distinctive spot to enjoy a meal with a view of the ocean beyond. This is just one of the unique architectural details that define this home. Throughout, paneled, brick, and stone walls provide warmth and interest, while extraordinary materials and the finest finishes help elevate the residence to levels rarely seen.
